Summary

In early 2002 Studium Generale organized the lecture series “Challenging the 21st century, facing the future’ in the context of the “Technology and Culture ” program at TU Delft. Four professors from different disciplines gave their views on the impact of recent technological developments on our culture. The focus was on: technique, borders, breakthroughs, and future.

My job was to make a design and transform the lecture hall in the Aula of TU Delft, so the readings would be attractive to the public. An enclosure of the speaker forms by the use of separate elements in combination with blue light, along with the so-formed shadows on the ceiling panel. There are projection screens on either side of the lecture room, where futuristic images were shown combined with experimental electro music.
